For the past year, Walgreens and Express Script have tried to negotiate their contract. On December 31st, the contract expired with no renewal, and now the two will no longer work together.
Now what does this mean for current Walgreens prescription customers?
Walgreens will still continue to offer customers their competitive pricing, discounts with generic drugs, and bigger discounts for 90 day supplies of medication, instead of three 30 day supplies.
They are also offering special savings on their Walgreens Prescription Savings Club for the month of January. Individuals can get the savings plan for $5, and families can get the plan for only $10!! This savings plan gives discounts on more then 8000 different drugs and can help people on long term meds pay as little as $1 a week for 30+ day supplies.
Walgreens wants to let all it's customers know that they no longer will work with a middle man, and that they care about their communities. Walgreens is a great place to get prescriptions filled, especially in emergency situations. I know from personal experience that when you just get out of the hospital and need pain killers late at night, Walgreens is always near by. They are also a great place to get your annual flu shot. Sometimes getting to the doctors office just doesn't work. With Walgreens you head in and with in 15 minutes you have your shot!!
